Since the announcement that Joe Manganiello had been cast as Deathstroke, fans have wondered when and where they would get a first look at the actor in the DC Extended Universe. Of course, Manganiello ended up appearing as Slade Wilson aka. Deathstroke in a Justice League post-credits scene and the actor just released an official image of himself in costume.
Taking to Twitter, Manganiello shared the image (below) which shows Deathstroke unmasked. In the scene, Slade Wilson is shown meeting with Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor to discuss putting a League of supervillains together.
While nothing has been officially confirmed, I think it’s safe to say that Deathstroke will be a major player in the DC Extended Universe. We already know that a solo movie for the character is in development and the Justice League post-credits scene seems to suggest that Deathstroke will appear in a Justice League sequel. At one point, Manganiello was set to be the villain of Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie, but since Matt Reeves joined as director, that seems to have changed.
